Item Description

You and five guests will enjoy tasting the award winning Grove 45 Extra Virgin Olive Oil while picnicing with a gourmet lunch amongst the trees at Storm Ranch in Chiles Valley.

Grove 45 Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is a venture that started in 2009 when long time friends Nena Talcott and Bonnie Storm agreed to go into business together. Between them they had 45 years of farming experience and had both produced gold medal award winning extra virgin olive oils under different labels. Nena had sold her vineyards and groves in 2006 and she missed being involved in the farming community. Bonnie was getting tired of doing all of the work on her own and was ready to consider shutting down her operation. Fortunately, after a discussion one afternoon, Grove 45 EVOO was born.

The groves are located on Bonnie’s ranch in the Chiles Valley District AVA in the Napa Valley Appellation. Chiles Valley is the perfect environment to grow olives (and grapes), with its warm summer days, chilly nights and an 800 to 1,300 foot elevation. The trees are all Italian Varieties that Bonnie imported from Italy in 1994. The business partners are involved in every aspect of the oil production from driving the tractor to selling and delivering Grove 45 EVOO.
